With the new spectral irradiance measurement facility based on blackbody BB3500M of National Institute of Metrology (NIM), a bilateral spectral irradiance comparison was carried out between NIM and VNIIOFI (All Russian Research Institute for Optical and Physical Measurements) in the spectral wavelength from 250 to 2500 nm for the period of January 2015 to June 2016.
The temperature measurement of the high temperature blackbodies were traced to the Pt–C and Re–C fixed point blackbodies and checked against the WC–C fixed-point blackbody for the two institutes respectively. The consistency of the temperature at 3021 K is better than 70 mK. The comparison result shows that the average relative deviation of spectral irradiance at 44 designated wavelengths is 0.45%.
The consistency is better than 0.9% except the maximum deviation 1.1% at the wavelength of 2000 nm. The spectral irradiance units measured by NIM and VNIIOFI in this comparison are in agreement within the combined standard uncertainties of the laboratories over the wavelength range compared.
